? >> yeah. they were very good to allow me an amendment and the reason they did is because harry denied me an amendment on the gun bill on one that would have passed an actually solved the problem which he promised to give me. so i think, you know, the fact is we ought to be worried about making sure that people who shouldn't have guns, people on the do not buy list don't get them, rather than restricting people who are good, great citizens from carrying out their own responsibilities and expressing their second amendment rights. so i'll eventually get this amendment. took me two times to get the parks and the forest service and i'll eventually get it and what i'll do is publicize every rape that goes on corps land and say a good portion of them wouldn't happened if we would have passed this amendment and we will eventually get there. >> on the hill a lot of people talking about the ben ghazi hearings yesterday. what is your state from what you learned from the state department official? >> i think the state department has real trouble. having sit on the intelligence committee and seen the

morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. monday evening, 5:52 p.m. the unbelievable story that has dominated the news cycle began with this call to 911. i've been kidnapped and i've been missing for ten years and i'm here. i'm free now. >> that was 27-year-old amanda berry who disappeared the day before her 17th birthday in 2003, calling for help after emergeg from a 10-year nightmare. berry along with her 6-year-old daughter was freed from the house of who rows where they were held captive. sometimes bound with ropes and chains. more than a decade. the survival story of these women after enduring abduction, enslavement and torture is a chilling echo of others like jaycee dugard and elizabeth smard that have also captured national attention. these are the stories they remember because they go to the heart of the most horrifying svu filled nightmares of teen girls and sexual vulnerability. but far more common when it comes to young women and sexual exploitation, teen girls denied the support to emerge safely into womanhood in an environment of sexual consent and exploration. instead they are

is sort of harry reid and democrats are threatening to kind of torpedo the immigration reform bill by inserting these provisions protecting gay couples, as if it is some kind of special interest provision that they are throwing in there. in fact, this is consistent with the national view on this topic. and so there is a push to make sure that gay couples are included in that. i think it is probably more to think of it as republicans finding excuses to hop off the train on this for their own reasons or just not being able to bring along their very extreme base that is not willing to go along with this. >> when we look down at the state level, illinois was a state that looked like it was going to get marriage equality well before maybe a rhode island or a delaware. there was a big shake up with pat brady who stepped aside because of his support for marriage equality. you point out what is taking place on the national scene and a great piece with senator lahy and what he is able to do. >> the ooriginal proposal talked about for years would create what's called a permanent partnership
